Im trying to make my 404.php look slightly prettier and also use a re-direct back to my blog, only problem is I cannot get any new content Im putting into the 404.php file to show up on screen....?
The site/blog is not currently live as Im testing everything locally on my WAMP server Ive installed.I dont know if this is the cause, it shouldnt be... ?
PLEASE NOTE! I have placed a standard <p> tag in to test the 404 error page to see if the new content is shown but I just keep getting the default 404 message, its not even producing my header/sidebar/footer just literally a blank white canvas with "Not Found" in bold lettering followed underneath by "The requested URL /wordpress/dgdghdgdg was not found on this server."
The code for my 404.php file :
<?php @header("HTTP/1.1 404 Not found", TRUE, 404); ?> <?php get_header() ?> <div id="container"> <div id="content"> <p>This is some random text to test the page</p> <div id="post-0" class="post error404"> <?php thematic_404() ?> </div><!-- .post --> </div><!-- #content --> </div><!-- #container --> <?php thematic_sidebar() ?> <?php get_footer() ?>
